Cleveland Cavaliers officially eliminated from next year’s NBA playoffs

CLEVELAND—Despite an off-season filled with high expectations the Cleveland Cavaliers came up short in their quest to win an NBA title and were officially eliminated from the 2012 NBA playoffs earlier this week. “To be honest, I thought we were done when we lost that 26th game,” stated first year coach Byron Scott, referencing the Cavaliers losing streak of 26 games in a row, the longest in NBA History. “I was surprised they didn’t just cancel the rest of the season at that point. I mean we had starters who could barely play for the local high school team.” The only hope the Cavs have to not miss next year’s playoffs is the impending NBA lockout, which threatens to cancel the entire 2011-2012 season. In such a scenario, they would continue not making the playoffs well into the 2012-2013 season, and, speaking objectively, probably for much longer.
